Some days ago, I read about a famous Hollywood celebrity currently undergoing hypnotherapy to treat her smoking addiction. Reportedly, Lindsay Lohan is out to get some serious help for her nicotine addiction through hypnotherapy. I think that this is a good opportunity to share with you the power of improving your self control and curbing your cravings with hypnosis.
Tobacco smoking is one of the biggest killers in the world. Statistics show that at least one person dies every 6 seconds due to a tobacco related disease – that’s about 10 people every minute! There is no reason for anyone to suffer from lung diseases because of a smoking addiction. The problem is, quitting smoking is one of the hardest things to accomplish.
There are so many invented medications in the world that are geared toward smoking cessation. Some may work but most are a total waste of time and money. Many clients often wonder why it is so hard to quit smoking once you have started it. Nicotine withdrawal is one of the most common reasons why it is hard to quit this deadly habit.
Nicotine is a powerful natural-occurring liquid in cigarettes, which changes into brown when burned. Moreover, it is an addictive substance which causes a person to crave more after every use. It is so powerful that only one out of ten former smokers is able to stop the habit for good. In fact, according to FDA, 50% of smokers who underwent lung cancer surgery are likely to smoke again.
Mind Power to the Rescue
Interacting with my clients who have smoking problems has given me a lot of insight into this deadly addiction. I understand that cigarette smoking is triggered by urges that a smoker encounters every day. While it is important that withdrawal symptoms are addressed, learning how to effectively avoid urges is also critical in learning to quit smoking for good.
Through hypnosis, you will be open to direct suggestions, letting your mind record how dangerous this habit is for your body. I believe that the subconscious mind is the most powerful part of our body. Learning to harness it to help us curb cravings and urges will be helpful even for the most addicting substances out there.
Are you Prepared to Stop Smoking?
Hypnosis will not work for everyone. There are cases when people are able to resist after the sessions but will eventually go back when they are triggered by an event. Dr Ken Grossman, a hypnotherapy expert in Sacramento, USA, shared that people who do not allow themselves to be in a hypnotic state will never be able to use hypnosis for their recovery. It is important that if you wish to use hypnotherapy as a quit-smoking program, then you must come to the clinic with an open mind.
Smoking is a dangerous habit that has been proven to kill millions of people. Hypnosis is a powerful mind tool that can help you conquer this addiction. Through hypnosis, anyone with a willing mind will be able to stop their cravings of nicotine and its deadly effects.
